Ah Penneys, could you make us love you even more! I remember when Penneys makeup smelt like playdoh and was good as the stuff you would buy in the pound shop as a child. In the last year that has all changed, they have upped their game completely and are now producing makeup that competes with other budget brands on the market.
After reading lots of posts on P.S.Love and seeing it all over Instagram I knew I had to pick some bits up for myself to see what all the hype was.
I picked up one of the new P.S Matt Long Last Lipstick in Ladies Day.
I was expecting more a deeper shade by the packaging, so I was quiet surprised when the lipstick was more pink then plum. I was hoping to pair it with the number 04 lip pencil I picked up also but alas the pencil is much darker. I might try an ombre lip with the two colors in the near future. As it is a matte shade, good lip care is essential or you will find it will not sit well on the lips and highlight any dryness or cracks. The lipstick lasted well I got a few hours wear with no top ups and it was pretty smudge proof. I am pretty impressed and for €2 it is a total bargain.
These two P.S Love.. Lip Liner Pencils are only €1.50 each.
If you have not heard about the 06 Penneys lip liner then you have been living under a rock. Viva Adonis raves about it and Lisa over on Contour and Cuddles wears it every day. Influenced completely by other bloggers I knew I had to have it. It did not disappoint, it is a beautiful deep nude without been too brown (we are not going for 90s look here), it has amazing staying power and compliments most makeup looks. I either wear it all over the lip either on its own or with a slick of gloss, or pair it with many of the nude lipsticks in my collection.
The other liner I picked up is 04 plum, perfect for autumn months I can see myself get alot of wear out of it. I had originally picked it up to go with the lipstick but as previously mentioned it is more deeper in shade not to worry as the 06 before it this can be worn on its own or with some other plum lipsticks in my collection.
More makeup shopping will have to be done in the near future in Penneys, as I can not fault the quality or the price of these few pieces. I hope to see Penneys actually get a stand for their makeup, as at the moment some stores have the pieces all together and other stores have the collection scattered all over the place.
Have you picked up any of the P.S collection? If so what did you think of it?
